According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, “While the reviews might have been mixed, the audiences turned out in droves for the highly anticipated Sanjay Dutt biopic, Sanju. The film registered the biggest opening day figures for 2018”.

On Saturday, he posted on social media that ‘Sanju had notched a ‘phenomenal total’ on its first day of release, in addition to being the biggest debut of star Ranbir Kapoor’s career. He predicted that based on trends, the film is likely to cross the coveted Rs 100 crore mark in its opening weekend’.

Sanju has a 43% score on review aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes. Ranbir Kapoor received acclaim for his lead performance in the film.

The Hindustan Times review said that “Sanju is another gem in Ranbir Kapoor’s repertoire, but the same can’t be said about Rajkumar Hirani. Sanju is watchable but a very average fare”. His biggest opener before Sanju was the critical and commercial dud, Besharam, which had made Rs 21 crore on day 1.

‘Sanju leaped ahead of the opening day numbers of Salman Khan’s recent Race 3, which made Rs 29 crore, Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 2 Rs 25 crore.
